This is my first year growing my Cassia Tree. It is in bloom and these long bean like pods are hanging from the tree.Are these going to be the seeds ? If so when do I harvest them and how to I grow them from Seeds ?

thanks

Yes, the pods will have seeds in them. (It's like shelling peas or beans). I let the pod turn brown on the plant.

I haven't grow any from seed, so someone else will have to tell you how they did it. I would just throw alittle soil over them in a pot, and keep them misted, myself.

If it is like my cassia, you won't have to collect any seeds,,, it will grow a few underneath for you.

Slip a old knee high over the pod, or some kind of netting. : )

They are starting to swell and get soft so maybe soon I will have seeds for trade.

I checked today and they are also getting plump and a few brown ones.Boy the seed pods sure are heavy and my tree limbs are bending. Has anyone grown them from seeds ? Please take a look at the photo and see if you can tell me what kind is it.The photo was taken when it just started to bloom at the end of summer.
